Frank (Sauzee) Heaven for third Lanark, 1903-04 the year after Hibernian won it with Dan McMichael.
although I'm lead to believe that football historians dispute he was actually ever their manager but more a club secretary. at least the stato that argued with the question reader on the quiz said anyway.
I didn't get it right.
it's also worth noting that until wim Jansen in 1997-98, the only non Scots to win the league title were heaven and McMichael.

few teams actually had managers in those days, in the way we have them now..they tend to have a trainer and a secretary and someone who managed the club (buying, selling etc) I think...actually hard to pinpoint who was “manager” back then. Great name though..Frank Heaven..also “managed” West Brom and Liverpool.
I never knew, or had totally forgotten, that John Barnes had managed Tranmere Rovers in 2009 until I heard mentioned on a podcast I was listening to yesterday. Perhaps unsurprisingly he didn't last long, 3 wins in 12 games before getting the heave.
